Absolutely erratic, kinda garage band sounding. Warts and all playing for sure. I knew recommending a 90's version was gonna be against the grain ... I just love it what can I say?

Jerry's solo is so sweet and innocent, the jelly in the middle of an odd sounding donut. I love how his soloing can be so unpretentious. No 'listen to my rock star solo on this one' stuff seems to ever go on.

I also love the Dylan lyrics, and Jerry's playing on his tunes always seems to go right to the emotional-heart-of-the-matter. The Dead musically interpreting Dylan's words was a perfect marriage if there ever was one imo.
